Staff was friendly upon check in. Campground was clean and maintained except men's bathroom. Enjoyed our spot as far as area it was clean and well maintained but very noisy we must have been not but a quarter of a mile in right next to a major road.and right next to an airport.

Staff was friendly and helpful. Place was clean. I think this is probably more of a campground for people either passing through or need a cheap place to stay/live for awhile. Was very crowded and noisy. We will probably go elsewhere for a fun family getaway. But was overall a good experience.

Bathroom situation could be better.

spaces were way too close together facilities and staff were good - not really a camping experience, more of a place to park for the night ps: I never recommend anything to anyone ever

Quick stop on the way north; staff was friendly, grounds were beautiful and bathrooms and pool were clean. Road noise was a bit much but there isn't anything you can do about that. We have never used KOA before but we definitely will in the future. We are tent campers and tent sites are getting harder and harder to find.

Trop dispendieux pour la qualité ordinaire. Le site est tassé, les toilettes malpropres; l'eau et l'électricité sont fournis heureusement. Il faudrait rénover les installations pour charger ce tarif.

friendly staff, nice place simple, what I expected

I liked that I could leave my trash at the site in a bag and the staff would pick it up. It was nice having ice there to purchase. We had a quiet sleep and enjoyed the atmosphere even though it was full with other campers.

only problem we encountered was that the bathrooms were being cleaned just before checkout...around 10 am. i think it would be more convenient for the cleaning to be done lots earlier or after check out time. also, it is the first campground i have stayed in that didn't have a locked gate at the entrance which always makes me feel safer.

The problem is the location it is in an industrial area and the FULL TIME residents are not friendly at all. The grounds are pretty dirty and cramped.

We had a great time. The whole place was quiet and very clean. I have not been to a KOA in over 20 years when I was a kid. We enjoyed it so much we are getting a membership.

I spoke with the office staff several times on the phone prior to our arrival and they were always extremely nice and helpful. The campground itself fine. It did look like it could use a little TLC and maintenance in general. The campsites were small but adequate for what we needed.

Pool & facilities were good. People were good. 25 min to the beach. Easy highway access Campsite was too loud. located beside the highway, near an airport & trains!!! Didn't sleep well in a tent.

In my opinion this KOA DOES NOT live up to the high standards of a KOA campground . It is in rough shape The staff refer to it as "rustic" & although the Staff seemed very pleasant and accommodating (and I firmly believe they are doing their best )The place is just run down and in disrepair.It is very urban and unlike many of the koa's we have visited there is no security to speak .

I used this KOA as my home base while attending a convention near the airport. Access to the freeway was easy for the 11 mile drive to the convention center.

It was great, not quite what we expected but not bad at all. Probably should have done more research on our part, so that is not KOA's problem. We were expecting more nature, we didn't realize it was a campsite in the middle of a town. Overall was really great for a cheap place to stay while in town, would definitely recommend it to anyone who asked.

It was safe for the most of our stay it was quit. The road traffic by the camp was noisy. The rocks in our camp site put holes in our tent floor. The employees in the office was very friendly. Grounds men could be more friendly. Camp ground close to everything.

Very friendly staff, close to Charleston for day trips! Some areas of the campground need updating, no 110 electric at some of the tent sites, showers in men's bathroom, for example. However, maintenance was going on while we were there, so maybe those and other issues will be addressed through the summer.

nice and shady tent site, friendly staff, some trash on the site was the only negative

I was delighted by the campground. Staff was super-friendly. Camp store stocked and very reasonable. This was my first koa experience and I'll definitely do it again!

Facility was okay, amenities good. Dogs welcome! Downside was location. Tent sites are small, no privacy at all. Needs more bushes between sites. Also we were right next to a used car lot that had bright lights on all night. Major road is very close by so there was a lot of traffic noise. A sound barrier wall or dense row of tall upright evergreen shrubs would be helpful.

I love KOA. Easy and affordable. I had a great stay in SC. My spot was perfect for my one person tent.

Ran out of firewood, on a sold out weekend there should have been plenty. Also our site was flooded. Take the site away or save it for late checkins.

The the grounds were not kept up and the property looked old. Trash was still on our campsite.

It was a lot further from the beach than indicated on the website and the camp sites were very close to one another so there wasn't much privacy.


We are 30 miles from our closest beaches so distance is relative to the beach you choose to visit.

campground gave us an uncomfortable feeling whilst here. couple 2 tent sites from us had a domestic incident at 1am threatening to kill each other with a knife. not overall as friendly as other KOAs we stayed at on our trip. mosquitos were also rampant, as is expected in humid summer weather, ensure you bring lots of mosquito repellant of some kind!


Tent occupants were evicted as soon as the incident was reported--mosquitoes are common to the Southeast, so we carry a wide range of repellant products in our camp store for your convenience.

Great, level sites and clean bathrooms, only thing I noticed that was wrong was one of the men's bathroom showers was out of order, other wise great stay!
Jul 28, 2014
Not enough bathrooms, Internet was bad, pool is in bad shape, not enough showers, too noisy. The camp ground sets close to the highway, airport and railroad. We had a hard time getting to sleep. The emploiyes were very good.

Friendly service. Great pool hours. Clean bathrooms/showers. Quiet. Would stay there again.

Always wondered about this KOA since it's conveniently located. Aside from the tight quarters, over-flying planes, by-passing trains and audible local traffic, the campground is clean enough and has a nice pool.

I stayed one very enjoyable evening in a tent site with electricity. The staff was very welcoming and informative. I had a great shower to clean up - lots of hot water. The wireless internet service was excellent. This KOA was a great place to stop on my trip!

We had a wonderful stay as always at Charleston KOA. We arrived late at night and our paperwork was taped to the door with the requested site. The campsite is quiet, peaceful and well shaded. We will be back.

I told the staff about a flooding shower, it was never fix. No paper tissue, not working toilet. AC in bathrooms ok.
